Set in a toy tabletop town, this film uses brightly colored model cars and trucks to demonstrate a range of driving safety scenarios. The number of near-misses and accidents would make for an extremely violent film if real vehicles and people were used, but the models keep the feeling of mayhem at a distance. An unusual example of a rich tradition within the safety film genre: the tabletop model.
